He has been named the most revered mascot in college sports. Bevo is the live mascot of the athletic programs at the University of Texas at Austin. Bevo is a Texas Longhorn steer with burnt orange and white coloring from which the university derived its color scheme. The profile of the Longhorn's head and horns gives rise to the school's hand symbol and saying: "Hook 'em Horns". Bevo made his first appearance at the University of Texas in 1916 at the annual Thanksgiving rivalry between the Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies. The idea originated with Stephen Pinckney, a 1911 law graduate, who had long wanted to acquire a real longhorn as a live mascot for the University. While employed by the U.S. Attorney General’s office, he had spent much of 1916 in the western plains of the state to assist with raids on cattle rustlers. A raid near Laredo in late September included a steer whose fur was so orange-tinted that Pinckney knew he had found his mascot. The name “Bevo” was a play on the word “beeve”, which is not only the plural of beef, but long used as slang for a cow or steer destined to become food. The name might be thought of as “Beef-o.” Who actually named the animal Bevo is unknown, though Pinckney is the top suspect.
